Adding LIFE to your years and years to your life!
This is assuming you might use bee products. If you're completely vegan, ignore my post :-)
Have you tried a honey mask on your face? Here are some variations:
Honey Mask - just use honey alone and apply to your skin. Leave on 10-15 minutes and rinse off.
Honey and Tea Tree - add a few drops of tea tree oil to about a tablespoon of honey and apply to your skin. Leave on 10-15 minutes and rinse.
Honey and Lemon - If you have oily skin-type acne, try adding the juice of half a lemon to your honey and apply that to your skin. Leave on 10-15 minutes and rinse.
If you're acne or blemish-prone, I would stay away from oils on the face - with the exception of jojoba, which is technically a wax and is good for balancing our own oils. On that note, I usually make a vial of jojoba with tea tree essential oil in it for my acne-prone clients (usually their teenagers).
If you don't have anywhere you have to be, apply some honey to your blemishes and leave on as long as possible.
Honey is an anti-bacterial and I've seen great results on other people who've used it on their acne. Also, maybe you're detoxing? Since our skin is our largest organ, detoxing is going rear its ugly head through blemishes or acne.
As long as I stay really high-raw, I never have much problem with my skin, but taking in some "not so good for me foods" will show up later through my skin when I eat really clean foods.
I've been doing some research on this topic and found some natural, and even ORGANIC, options!
+ Good for the skin: progesterone cremes, chromium, potassium, selenium, sulfur, silicon, zinc, organic azelaic acid, vitamins B2 B3 B5 B6 and E
+ propolis (bee food), aloe, burdock, calendula, fish oils, flax seed oil, lavendar oil, neem oil, oregano oil, tea tree oil, fenugreek seeds, grapefruit seed extract, RYE SPROUTS (bulking up on these!)
- Not good for the skin: trans fats, bromine, iodine, dilantin, margarine, hypochlorydria, intestinal permeability
Has Anyone experienced any success using natural medicine, foods, or homeopathic remedies for acne?
